Abstract/Contents:Addresses the question "is the frequent watering of greens necessary?" Advises watering the required amount without over-watering, as this can lead to an infestation of brown patch fungal disease. States that "the soil moisture should be kept within an inch of the surface but the soil should never be allowed to puddle." Recommends the use of a spiked roller to promote subsurface water and nutrient penetration, as well as deeper rooting.
